Need sleep

About 2:30 am, I felt ready to try to go to sleep. I worked a few Sudoku puzzles and finally felt sleepy. I turned out the light and started to drift off. About 20 minutes later, I hear screams. Matthew was having a nightmare about bugs, so when he woke up he kept thinking there were bugs everywhere. I tried comforting him and reasoning with him, then putting him back in bed. No luck. Started screaming again. I tried putting him in bed with Michael. No luck. I tried putting him out on the couch, which he usually begs for. I thought that worked because he was quiet long enough for me to drift off again. Nope. More screams. I finally brought him into bed with me and then spent the rest of the evening until about 6 this morning with him waking up yelling every time he fell asleep.

I REALLY need a nap. I wonder if I can fit one in today and if the kids will refrain from destroying the house if there isn't a supervising adult. :)

I was up until about 2:30am too. I just could not sleep. I kept on tossing and turning in bed so I came downstairs so I wouldn't wake Jim. Instead I played around on the computer until then. Not good. I have a headache today. I told Hannah (4), under no uncertain circumstances was she to come out of her room at resting time today. Mommy NEEDS to nap.

I got a short nap (30 minutes) until the phone rang. Thankfully, the boys sat here in the living room and watched TV the whole time.

Tony has dreams like that, poor kid.

Oh no! :( I hope you (and Matthew) rest well tonight.

That must've been some kind of awful dream to have continued to freak him out like that!!!
